DESCRIPTION

The 17,000 islands that comprise the nation of Indonesia stretch more than 3,000 miles along the equator, bridging Asia and Australasia. Indonesia’s natural habitats vary widely. On some islands, tropical forests climb from steamy lowlands to mountain slopes. On others, parched savannah thrives. Coral reefs line thousands of tranquil atolls, while relentless waves batter rocky cliffs on other shores. In Papua, the mountains reach so high that permanent ice caps top their peaks, surrounded by barren alpine tundra.
 These wildly ranging habitats are home to an incredible number and diversity of living creatures - this iconic and landmark series is a celebration of Indonesia’s most spectacular locations and incredible wildlife.

EPISODE GUIDE

  • Wild Indonesia: Papua's Lost Worlds
    On Indonesias eastern frontier lies an ancient world forged by fire. Isolated for thousands of years it is a land of extremes where creatures have evolved beyond recognition. Each habitat harbours a unique mix of the bold and the bizarre as Papuas lost worlds support one of the richest and strangest concentrations of life on our planet.
  • Wild Indonesia: Islands of Monsters
    Borneo is the worlds third largest island, and Sumatra is no dwarf in comparison. Both islands became cut off from the Asian mainland when sea levels rose at the end of the last ice age 12,000 years ago. Large animals became marooned, isolated from their mainland cousins. Over time, they have adapted and evolved to their new home developing an array of unique traits on each island. Today, these are the Islands of Monsters.
  • Wild Indonesia: Land of Dragons
    Central Indonesia is a wild, volcanic world. Trapped in the heart of the monsoon, rains have created a paradise and driven the evolution of rich and bountiful life. Cut off from east and west, it is an extraordinary island paradise home to a unique mix of creatures and a land where dragons rule.
